18/03/02 Bel Esprit Firms for Slipper after Choisir's Defeat

Brilliant Melbourne colt Bel Esprit is now an outright favourite for Saturday's Golden Slipper Stakes after the defeat of his main rival Choisir on the weekend.

The John Symons trained colt is now the outright favourite with bookmakers and the fixed odds TAB services for the 1200 metre Group One feature for two-year-olds at Rosehill.

Leading Melbourne bookmaker Michael Eskander has cut the price of the Royal Academy colt to $4 (from $5), while he eased Choisir to $5 (from $4).

Other significant moves included Victory Vein ($8-$5.50), Yell ($13-$10), Pillaging ($21-$8), Planchet ($26-$10), Chuckle ($21-$16) and Snowland ($6-$5.50).

Fans of Bel Esprit may prefer the prices on offer from the NSW TAB fixed odds service. The colt is favourite with the agency but $4.25 was being offered this afternoon.

Other differences between Michael Eskander and the NSW TAB are:
Victory Vein - $5 with Eskander - $5.50 with NSW TAB
Yell - $10 - $9
Calaway Gal - $16 - $15
Brief Embrace - $21 - $17
Planchet - $10 - $11
Chuckle - $16 - $15
Pillaging - $8 - $11
